Hi Everyone
Hope you're all well!
I thought I had did all my research, with the companies for the clothing and articles, well, I found out some more things!
Zazzle is an American based company. You get paid in American funds. So, before I even start, I have to fill out a certain tax form. Which, I don't mind. After that, when I get paid, the basic amount that will be taken off my money is 30%, before anything gets deposited to me. If you make more, then more gets taken off. That's a lot of money! Then at the end of the year, I would have to file two tax returns.

So, I am going to leave Zazzle alone for right now and see what Red Bubble has to offer. They are an Australian company.

The other choice is Art Of Where. Which is the Canadian company that I was telling you about, that doesn't take returns. The weird part is, they do the leggings for Zazzle! Crazy!

I also found some other Canadian companies, where I can have my art printed on their items, but then I purchase and sell them. I can do this with Art of Where too.

I thought this was going to be easy! LOL! As the saying goes, everything happens for a reason. I know this will all work out, it's just going to take me more time, then I thought.

Through all of this, I have finished a painting.

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're doing well!

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, I was hit by a bad headache. (Another one!) This is part of that stupid flu going around! I finally got rid of it on Thursday! The only thing that really helped, was putting an ice pack on top of my head! I hope this flu is gone for good! It keeps coming back!

I still kept my painting going. This is a sneak peak of what I'm working on.
I'm really going to try, hopefully by this weekend, to start putting my art on the clothes and articles! I want to get it started, before I have to do my taxes!

Keep warm! I know this week, we had tones of snow, but, I think by next week, it will be all gone! (Secretly I'm hoping for more snow! I know, I'm crazy! LOL!)

Big Hugs!

Hi Everyone 😀
Hope you're doing well!
I'm all better from being sick!

I haven't talked about the "gym" in a long time! December and January weren't good months for me. Actually, you can include the end of November too. I actually gained back 10 pounds!

The last time we talked about my weight, I think I had lost 22 pounds. Well, I now have 32 pounds off! Happy Dance! I went through that down spiral, but I got myself out of it. We all go through things, don't we! I'm not giving up! I'm going to keep my smile bright and carry on! I don't know how long it's going to take me, but I am going to succeed!

For the past couple of weeks, I have been working on this painting. Especially, when I have been hungry! LOL! I kept putting layer, upon layer of paint on the canvas, when my mind was going to other places, but I finally finished it!

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all well!

This week, I have been up and down! I guess I got that stupid stomach flew that has been going around! Not fun! But, I am hanging in!!

I did finish the Baby Crow special order for Finland 😃
I was very touched by the name that was chosen for this baby! His name is "Litha". The name means "A Beam Of Light" in Xhosa.  Xhosa is a language from South Africa. I am truly so grateful to have been asked to create this piece! This is the biggest Baby Crow I have created! 11" x 14". I was taken out of my comfort zone and that is a good thing!
This is what he looked like the last time you saw him.
May I introduce "Litha"
I also finished one more 10" x 20" canvas painting. 
"Sacred Calling"

Big Hugs 😊
